Delicious whisky with a sensational nose. Would I (exceptionally) buy! What is that? No idea. At first I thought that I know that ... but ... no. As written, I am pretty sure that there are so 20-25 years maturation, probably in an ex-Bourboncask. The alcohol I would estimate below 50%, either very well involved or just drinking strength.
sweet and sour, fresh, red fruits, malt, spicy, red gooseberries, sugared rhubarb, meringue, fennel, cinnamon, cucumber, dill, wild honey, nutmeg, ginger, grated lemon zest, very faint smoky notes, old kitchen cupboard, dust ... sensational variety of flavors. A constant interplay between sweet-fruity and sour-spicy, in addition to great barrel notes. He must be older, around the age of 20, because I'm almost overwhelmed again. I could smell forever!
sweet, fruity, dusty, white pepper, dry wood, creamy, mint tea, nutmeg, malt, light earthy, oranges. The tastes also old, but is not yet killed on tap, so probably not older than 25 years. No trace of alcohol or bitterness. Again, a slight hint of smoke on the tongue, not unpleasant. Unfortunately, the whisky in the taste is not as complex as in the smell, but quite delicious.
long, subtle fruit sweetness and this cigarette smoke, to pleasant tannins, is a bit musty
